I think we need to do "b" - include the Sun Users Guide, which we have
to have for panel, nautilus, etc., and nothing else. None of the rest is
updated, and it's too close to release to mess with. We need to get this
out, then get it cleaned up for 2.0.1.

Jeff, Sander - I'd prefer is Sander did it. I'm not at all comfortable
with the auto* stuff. I'll be happy to take this over, but I'd rather
not have 2.0.0 be my first attempt.
